A very slender bird mostly gray. You will generally see it perched on a bare branch in the top most part of a tree.


While walking along the walk way along the south rim at the Grand Canyon I spotted a cute little bird deep in a bush.

Poking my lens into the bush I snapped a few images.

Now if I can just get it to come out of the shadows, I can get a biter photo.


With its mouth open I can just imagine it is saying.
Oh, please don't hurt me with that great big ole lens Mr.

I'll fly out so you can get a better photo.


Much better, can we see the other side of you please.


Well I guess I can't be choosy, it turned its head for me.

You just never know what type of birds you are going to see when making a trip to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon
